While waiting on the divorce process. She is now 6 months pregnant by someone else while they are still legally married. She quit her job as she is expecting twins. Will she still be ordered to pay child support and provide health insurance in Texas with newborns and no job?
She can still be ordered to pay child support whether she has a job or not. Typically when a person doesn't have a job the support is based on a 40 hour work week at minimum wage. Your son will have to wait until after she has the babies before finalizing the divorce and even then there are a few...Read more »
If that is your wife’s child then she has the same rights to possession of your child if there are no set out orders. If you feel the need to get orders put into place then consult an attorney. Good luck. 888-343-4529.

The signing of the informal document you reference does not override any court action. However, it can be used as evidence especially if you are being asked to pay retroactive child support. Do not ignore any requests for the court simply because you believe that the document that you signed...Read more »

I have great insurance on my son. It is just that you have to go in-network to get the benefits. If she doesn’t use it and runs up bills, do I still have to pay 1/2 of out of pocket costs? I pay a large premium for insurance for him and also have a health savings card for meds and deductibles. Help!
Your court order should have provisions stating that whoever uses out of network providers then has to pay 100% of the out of pocket/uninsured expense. That provision used to be part of the standard language in court orders but the form changed several yrs ago to delete it, not sure why. If your...Read more »

Answers assume court order signed in Texas. You have to follow the order. If you have to pay to get the flight arrangements then your spouse does not have to pay what you are obligated to pay for them. But, you have to follow the order in to get possession at the time ordered in the order.
